The Community and Council Awards highlight and recognise community and councils together, bringing national recognition to projects and developments that may otherwise go unrecognised. Town, Burough, City and County councillors nominate projects across 20 categories that demonstrate the work implemented through unique projects that enhance their local area for the good of the community. A wide range of categories includes Best Local Festival, Best Public Park, Local Sports Club of the Year etc.
At an awards ceremony held on January 30th at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Santry hosted by RTÉ’s Miriam O’Callaghan Liberties Festival was awarded Best Local Festival / Event of the Year. A very well-deserved award for such a hard-working group of people. Congratulations to all involved!
Liberties Festival held its 45th event in 2015, with 80% of the shows, gigs and talks held free of charge. One of Ireland’s oldest festivals, the annual event brings life and colour to the streets of The Liberties every summer. Run by volunteers, assistance is now sought for 2016.
